Identifying and attaining suitable Reviewers is a common strain for publications as their internal and external databases of candidates are often static, stale, inflexible, and overused. In addition to limited coverage, publications also experience a lack of diversity, visibility into key information on potential candidates, and measured to counter fraud, bias, or conflicts of interests. Not only does this create additional administrative burden on editorial office staff, but it also delays peer review, increases costs, and poses potential risks to review quality/research integrity if unfit candidates are selected.
Aries and Scopus recently announced their partnership to offer publishers a dynamic and efficient Reviewer search solution. Through a seamless integration of Find Reviewers using Scopus and Editorial Manager® (EM), publications can streamline the invitation process by easily locating qualified and available review candidates without workflow disruption. This collaboration is the most recent addition to Aries’ ecosystem of integrated tools through the Aries Partner Program.
To learn more about this integration, join Aries’ upcoming webinar, Streamline Reviewer Invitation with Scopus’ Advanced Search Solution, on Wednesday, August 23 at 10am ET.
